These sound like aromatic, cheesy biscuits with a kick! I was searching for a Hot Cherry Pepper canning recipe and ran across this on www.ilovepickles.com . If you prefer less spice, I am sure sweet cherry peppers would work too. Cannot wait to make them and will let you know if prep time is accurate.
